Just be careful and don't let it lie around, in the hands of kids this could be seriously dangerous!
Note: This thing is much bigger than it appears on the picture, the handle must be half a meter long or so. Just don't be surprised if it comes in a biiiiiig box from Amazon.
So i had a quick search on the net & advice was to buy a wallpaper perforater.
There are handheld versions available, which are more expensive, but decided on this one as its cheap but also has a pole to make it easier to control to push up and down the walls & probably a lot less painful on the wrists.
It has done the job brilliantly on the last room & sped up the time it took to strip the paper - I only wish I had purchased it 3 rooms ago!!!
Remember this can be quite dangerous, reminds me of something out of a Hollywood movie, like Rollerball, so leave it out of reach of little hands! It does come with a plastic case protector sleeve.
Definitely worth the £7.42 I paid for it
It does the job but I would be wary of using it on a wall that I don't plan to plaster (or at least skim) after the wall paper has been removed because it's so sharp that it digs into the wall beyond the paper.
The product comes with a plastic casing for the toothed roller bit but this falls apart in no time.
If you buy this product, please keep it safe when not in use. Stepping on it alone could do a lot of damage let alone someone getting tempted to (or in anger) use it as a weapon.
1) HIRE a serious steamer, DO NOT buy a cheap one. It's night and day, an hour with a proper steamer (they are available to buy on Amazon e.g. Earlex LMB275 SteaMMaster W'Paper Stripper 230V for about £250, but only £50 to rent for a week) was equivalent to a day with a £50 bought steamer (I had both Wagner W-14 2000 Watt Steam Wallpaper Stripper and BLACK+DECKER KX3300T Wallpaper Stripper 2400 Watt). There's no comparison.
2) Use this Perforator a lot. It made a huge difference, allowing the steam to get through the many layers of paint. A good Perforating would halve the time.
After stripping one layer of wallpaper, I found another underneath but this had been painted over making it difficult to remove.
The steamer did not penetrate through the paint although I did "cross hatch" an area with a scraper and managed to remove some, but I knew this was going to take a long time.
Enter this perforator - first thing I noticed was that the spikes face in a certain way, so I assume this is why some people have had spikes fall off?
If you look at the roller end on, you can work out which way the spikes work.
The main thrust and pressure is forwards, driving the spikes in, and easing off the pressure on the return stroke to avoid damaging them.
I went all over the wall and then soaked it with a water spray.
Went back approx 15 minutes later with the steamer and the paint/wallpaper layer lifted off easily using the scraper, this left the backing paper which was easy to remove using the steamer and scraper again.
This tool made the whole job much easier, and as another reviewer said, try and remove wallpaper in an area you missed and you will see how good this device is.
